It’s always a joy to travel from California to visit my father at his residence at The Heritage in Chicago. This was my second attempt to capture the amazing view from the balcony. I was armed with a better camera and better lens than the prior time. Regrettably, I missed much of the cocktail and social hour with him and the rest of my family on this lovely night because… well because it’s not every day a photographer has the chance to acquire a cityscape this spectacular.

This image offers a different experience than most cityscapes. The viewer is in the city rather than simply looking at it. One can gaze down and observe the 10-story mural of Muddy Waters or a Picasso sculpture. The Sears tower can be seen rising above the Chase building. The dark building in the lower foreground is the old Marshal Fields (now Macy’s) department store that was famous for their animated Christmas displays. There is a tremendous amount of detail in this VAST photo that can be explored and enjoyed with a large print.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed currency and military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
